We offer individualized articulation therapy to improve a child’s speech intelligibility and articulation skills. Articulation therapy can include only a few articulation errors (saying ‘tat’ instead of ‘cat’) or can be more severe in a child who has many errors or substitutions and is very difficult to understand. Our therapists are highly skilled and experienced with articulation delays as well as the more severe disorders of apraxia of speech. Therapy sessions are structured but fun and children look forward to speech time to practice their sounds.
Children can display language delays for many reasons or due to related medical diagnoses. Language therapy is often very play-based where the child is even unaware they are getting therapy. Activities are tailored to a child’s needs to improve language skills to an age appropriate level. Play strategies and language eliciting techniques are shared with parents and caregivers to work on encouraging the use of improved language skills outside of therapy sessions. Our therapists are highly skilled and experienced with a variety of syndromes, medical conditions, autism, or other related medical diagnosis that may be contributing to a child’s language delay.
Feeding and Swallowing Therapy
Infants, Toddlers, and Children can display difficulty with feeding for many reasons. Our therapists are highly skilled with treating swallowing difficulties, tube dependent feeders, food aversions, difficulty transitioning to various food textures, and more. We offer feeding therapy in the home or in our specialized feeding therapy clinic where we offer specialized equipment for feeding.
Pediatric Occupational Therapists help children participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. develop the skills they need to grow into functional, independent adults. Physical impairment, injuries and other conditions may hinder a child's ability to perform common tasks or progress normally through the stages of social or cognitive development. Therapies common to pediatrics include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for those experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
